Infinera, in partnership with Colt, a provider of business communications and IT managed services, has successfully completed its first European field trial of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (100GbE) services.

The trial consisted of prototype 100GbE client interfaces in Infinera systems in London and Frankfurt. The 100GbE service was passed over the 861-kilometer route from London to Frankfurt on Colt’s low latency network. The prototype Infinera 100GbE interfaces are fully compliant with the industry standard ratified in June 2010, known as IEE 802.3ba. Testing and verification of the transmission were performed with an EXFO FTB-85 100 Gigabit/second (Gbps) Packet Blazer tester.

Two weeks ago, Infinera announced the successful completion of a field trial involving next-generation photonic integrated circuits (PICs) successfully transmitting and receiving 100 Gigabit (100G) communications across a 1348 kilometer live network in the US. The next generation of Infinera PICs will have data capacity of 500 Gbps.
